I wore this to our school’s film festival, way back before the Lunar New Year break (yep, I’m still working my way through backlogged outfits.) It’s called the Golden Bee Festival, hence my bee brooch. For the rest of the outfit, I wanted to keep it simple while still dressy enough for a special event. It was freezing that day though, so this is the best I could do. It was also my attempt to modernize this skirt a bit – here it looks like it’s from the 1970s, not the 1870s, so at least that’s a success?
(Sorry, Cake. I don’t do short skirts.)
Usually, when I wear vintage pieces, I try to balance it with more modern pieces to avoid looking like a cosplayer. However, during this past year, as my vintage collection grows, I sometimes find myself going all-out, just for fun. Like this outfit, for example. The skirt is a bit longer than I expected, but I decided to keep it as it is so I can live out my Edwardian fantasy in my head. I did get some funny looks as I biked to work in this, but I didn’t mind. I was busy imagining myself as Anne of Green Gables (I probably look more like Marilla, but that’s OK, she’s a badass lady too.)
